On Saturday, February 4, 2012, you will have the unprecedented opportunity to participate in a Best Practices Resource Workshop with noted author and Certified Public Accountant, Dan Busby. As the President of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability and author of the Zondervan tax guides for ministers and churches, Mr. Busby is one of the foremost experts on church financial issues in the nation.
The workshop will be held at the Kansas City International Airport Marriott and will start at 9:00 am and conclude by no later than 4:00 pm. The Church of God Benefits Board, along with approximately ten other denominational benefits boards, will be sponsoring this unique opportunity for you to interact and learn from one of the best financial specialist in the country.
The agenda will include sessions on best practices in financial management for the local congregation, the impact of the Health Reform Act on the church, as well as the latest information on pastoral housing, taxation, compensation, and retirement issues. This is a day of training that pastors and church treasurers will not want to miss.
Lunch will be included so participants will not have to leave the comfort of the hotel all day. We are working to make the cost of this workshop as economical as positive – and anticipate that the total cost per participant, including lunch, will be less than $50.
Our greatest concern is that space is extremely limited. Only the first 200 who register will be able to attend due to the limited size of the venue and Dan Busby’s desire for the conference to be small enough for it to be interactive. While registration will not open for another 45 days or so, I need to hear from you if you are possibly interested in attending this workshop. If you think that you will be able to attend the workshop, please send an e-mail to me at email@example.com as soon as possible so that I can attempt to reserve enough slots for our attenders.
Again, you do not want to miss this opportunity – but you must act quickly. Once registration is opened to everyone, I am concerned that all the available slots may be taken quickly. So let me know if you are interested so that I can reserve your slot. Act today.
